Written by Grantlee Kieza for Qweekend. Published in - IT takes less time to fly to Vanuatu than it does to reach Coffs Harbour or Hervey Bay – and once there, time melts away.  If there’s a more glorious sight on Earth than the one shimmering before me in this tropical paradise, I’m yet to see it.
